Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies Recipe

This Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies recipe is very popular in our house. I love the fact that they are flourless. Adding protein to desserts make me feel less guilty about eating more than I should. Again everything in moderation. My kids love junk food just like any other kid out there. But making desserts a bit healthier does help. The added protein in this peanut butter cookie recipe is more for me than them!

For fewer calories, try using baking sweetener (erythritol) instead of the coconut sugar and also opt for dark chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet.

Difference between natural peanut butter and regular peanut butter

There is a big difference between both. Natural peanut butter has only two ingredients. Peanuts and salts. Even though you can now find natural unsalted peanut butter which will be simply ground peanuts. This is the healthiest kind of peanut butter out there. Regular peanut butter has a few more ingredients added to it like sugar and hydrogenated vegetable oil. This is done to make sure that their consistency isn’t affected by time and the surrounding temperature.

Can you use natural peanut butter in peanut butter cookies?

You can certainly use natural peanut butter but the results won’t be as great as using regular peanut butter. When you used natural peanut butter with your cookie recipe, it will tend to make your cookies spread out more and make them crispier.
